Taylor Wright Rushing, a Masters of Fine Arts student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is an artist of many talents. From March to April, he shared these talents - including woodworking, painting, drawing, and music - as the Artist-In-Residence at the Bubbler at Madison Public Library
“Philosophically, I’m really on the same page as the folks here.” Rushing said. It’s all about accessibility, completely unpretentious art-making, and it’s free to the public. The Bubbler has had such a great roster of other artists-in-residence that I’m proud to say that I’m friends with a bunch of them, and I’ve been able to work with them in a variety of capacities. For me, the opportunity to participate in the art residency program was something that I just had to do.”
During his residency, Rushing led multiple workshops on the subject of wood carving and whittling.
